The Needham Village shops

Newton, MA – Bierbrier Development Inc., recently held a groundbreaking ceremony to begin  construction of Needham Street Village Shops, at 55 Needham St. in Newton.

Featuring 19,200sf of leasable area and 79 total parking spaces, Needham Street Village Shops will be a LEED Silver retail project ready for occupancy this summer.

More than 50 people attended the groundbreaking ceremony including city officials, business and community leaders and members of the project development team.

Needham-based Bowdoin Construction is serving as the general contractor; Prellwitz Chillinski Associates of Cambridge is the project architect and Atlantic Retail Properties is the exclusive leasing for the property.

Needham Street Village Shops is located within steps of the highly successful Avalon at Newton Highlands, which has nearly 300 high-end apartment units, and at a very convenient intersection of Needham and Winchester streets. The design is largely in keeping with Newton planners’ long-term vision for a Needham Street corridor that provides for pedestrian-friendly design.
